Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of the largest right-leaning newspaper in Michigan this morning. The Detroit News joins the Oakland Press as major newspapers endorsing Gov. Romney here in Michigan.
Gov. Romney has garnered a few other endorsements that are having a greater impact than the media realizes. This about this: In 2010, Michigan had a heated primary for Governor which consisted of 4 major candidates. ALL 4 candidates are supporting Gov. Romney. Pete Hoekstra is running for Senate, so he and Mitt have decided to stay away from public endorsements, but behind-the-scenes, they couldn’t be closer. They even go so far as to allow each other’s campaigns to pass items out at each other’s events. Gov. Rick Snyder has endorsed Mitt, Lt. Governor Brian Calley, AG Bill Schuette, Mike Cox, and Mike Bouchard who were the other two main competitors in the Michigan GOP Governor Primary. I’ve never seen such a strong consolidation of support here in Michigan before. It’s basically unanimous among all the top republicans in Michigan that Mitt Romney is the only choice for Michigan voters.
Chris Christie did a great job on Piers Morgan last night, and you can watch several of the clips here.
Donald Trump talks Mitt Romney on WSGW Radio in Michigan. Donald Trump has done a great job supporting Mitt here in Michigan.
One campaign strategy that has served the campaign amazingly well are the tele-townhalls he and Ann have participated in. Here is the audio of one of those calls. The campaign has run one or two of these calls all week and last week, and people are loving them so much more than the robo-calls.
